The St. Louis Cardinals and the Memphis Redbirds of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League announced today that they have agreed to a four-year extension of their player development contract through 2012.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with today’s news,” stated Cardinals’ Vice President /General Manager John Mozeliak. “The city of Memphis , its fan base, AutoZone Park and the management team of the Redbirds have provided us with a tremendous partnership dating back to 1998 when we first renewed our Triple-A affiliation with the city of Memphis and the Redbirds.”

The Cardinals have been affiliated with the Memphis Redbirds for the past 11 seasons, in addition to single-year stints in the city of Memphis in both 1937 and 1960.

In addition to the announcement of their affiliate extension, the Cardinals and Redbirds also announced today that Memphis will host the Cardinals in 2009 for a pair of exhibition games at AutoZone Park on April 3 and April 4.

“We (Cardinals) would like to offer a sincere thank you to Redbirds’ owner Dean Jernigan for completing today’s deal,” said Mozeliak. “His passion for Memphis Redbirds baseball and the Cardinals is greatly appreciated. Special thanks should also go to Ray Pohlman and John Pontius of the Redbirds Foundation for their continued support.”
